Since we had to add 2 more medications to The Older’s daily practice, I decided it was time to get organized. I can remember a lot of things, but not 5 medications, one of which is only taken on a Monday/Wednesday/Friday basis! I ended up getting an erasable chore chart and some reusable stickers from Lakeshore Learning, and set up an easy-to-follow chart.
Yes, there are bears on it, but I figured the stars would make up for that.
I filled in the chart with the colors of the medications (for now), and this way he can keep track of the medication with me. I know he’s starting to feel out of control with everything that’s going on, so I thought this would give him a way to feel that he is managing at least something. As you can see, I also got him a daily pill box that I’m going to let him decorate any way he wants.
